NASB — John 9 — KJV

Healing the Man Born Blind

1 As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. 2 And His disciples asked Him, “aRabbi, who sinned, bthis man or his cparents, that he would be born blind?” 3 Jesus answered, “[It was] neither [that] this man sinned, nor his parents; but [it was] so athat the works of God might be displayed in him. 4 We must work the works of Him who sent Me aas long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work. 5 While I am in the world, I am athe Light of the world.” 6 When He had said this, He aspat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and applied the clay to his eyes, 7 and said to him, “Go, wash in athe pool of Siloam (which is translated, Sent). So he went away and bwashed, and ccame [back] seeing. 8 Therefore the neighbors, and those who previously saw him as a beggar, were saying, “Is not this the one who used to asit and beg?” 9 Others were saying, “This is he,” [still] others were saying, “No, but he is like him.” IHe kept saying, “I am the one.” 10 So they were saying to him, “How then were your eyes opened?” 11 He answered, “The man who is called Jesus made clay, and anointed my eyes, and said to me, ‘Go to aSiloam and wash; so I went away and washed, and I received sight.” 12 They said to him, “Where is He?” He *said, “I do not know.”

Controversy over the Man

13 ¶ They *brought to the Pharisees the man who was formerly blind. 14 aNow it was a Sabbath on the day when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes. 15 aThen the Pharisees also were asking him again how he received his sight. And he said to them, “He applied clay to my eyes, and I washed, and I see.” 16 Therefore some of the Pharisees were saying, “This man is not from God, because He adoes not keep the Sabbath.” But others were saying, “How can a man who is a sinner perform such Ibsigns?” And cthere was a division among them. 17 So they *said to the blind man aagain, “What do you say about Him, since He opened your eyes?” And he said, “He is a bprophet.”

18aThe Jews then did not believe [it] of him, that he had been blind and had received sight, until they called the parents of the very one who had received his sight, 19 and questioned them, saying, “Is this your son, who you say was born blind? Then how does he now see?” 20 His parents answered them and said, “We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind; 21 but how he now sees, we do not know; or who opened his eyes, we do not know. Ask him; he is of age, he will speak for himself.” 22 His parents said this because they awere afraid of the Jews; for the Jews bhad already agreed that if anyone confessed Him to be IChrist, che was to be put out of the synagogue. 23 For this reason his parents said, “aHe is of age; ask him.”

24 ¶ So a second time they called the man who had been blind, and said to him, “aGive glory to God; we know that bthis man is a sinner.” 25 He then answered, “Whether He is a sinner, I do not know; one thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.” 26 So they said to him, “What did He do to you? How did He open your eyes?” 27 He answered them, “aI told you already and you did not blisten; why do you want to hear [it] again? You do not want to become His disciples too, do you?” 28 They reviled him and said, “You are His disciple, but awe are disciples of Moses. 29 We know that God has spoken to Moses, but as for this man, awe do not know where He is from.” 30 The man answered and said to them, “Well, here is an amazing thing, that you do not know where He is from, and [yet] He opened my eyes. 31 We know that aGod does not hear sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him. 32 ISince the beginning of time it has never been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a person born blind. 33 aIf this man were not from God, He could do nothing.” 34 They answered him, “aYou were born entirely in sins, and are you teaching us?” So they bput him out.

Jesus Affirms His Deity

35 ¶ Jesus heard that they had aput him out, and finding him, He said, “Do you believe in the bSon of Man?” 36 He answered, “aWho is He, ILord, that I may believe in Him?” 37 Jesus said to him, “You have both seen Him, and aHe is the one who is talking with you.” 38 And he said, “Lord, I believe.” And he aworshiped Him. 39 And Jesus said, aFor judgment I came into this world, so that bthose who do not see may see, and that cthose who see may become blind.” 40 Those of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these things and said to Him, “aWe are not blind too, are we?” 41 Jesus said to them, aIf you were blind, you would have no sin; but Isince you say, ‘bWe see,’ your sin remains.

The man that was born blind restored to sight.

1 ¶ And as [Jesus] passed by, he saw a man which was blind from [his] birth. 2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? 3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. 4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, 7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

8 ¶ The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? 9 Some said, This is he: others [said], He is like him: [but] he said, I am [he]. 10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened? 11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight. 12 Then said they unto him, Where is he?

He is brought to the Pharisees.

13 ¶ They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind. 14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. 15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see. 16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them. 17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.

They are offended at it, and excommunicate him:

18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight. 19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see? 20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: 21 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself. 22 These [words] spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. 23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him. 24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. 25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner [or no], I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. 26 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? 27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear [it] again? will ye also be his disciples? 28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples. 29 We know that God spake unto Moses: [as for] this [fellow], we know not from whence he is. 30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and [yet] he hath opened mine eyes. 31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. 32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. 33 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing. 34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
